UK - Following the sale of its ArcSystem, BlueSystem and CueSystem lighting products to ETC, Bristol-based GDS has announced it is launching a number of new product lines in the coming months.
No timeline has yet been specified, although the company has expanded and restructured its operations to support the new releases and meet the anticipated market demand. The new products will target the entertainment market and the broader architectural sector.
To ensure a smooth transition, GDS will also continue to manufacture the ArcSystem, BluesSystem and Cue-System ranges until 31 July, with ETC taking over the global manufacturing and distribution responsibilities for the lines in August.
Managing director Richard Cuthbert comments: “GDS is immensely proud to have developed and introduced many cutting-edge technologies over the years. We brought ArcSystem through from concept to manufacturing and witnessed its global adoption as a market leading product."
He continues:  “ETC recognised its incredible value and is perfectly placed to take it to the next level. Just as was the case when we sold our Liteware range in 2014, this sale put us in a very strong position to invest in the next generation of GDS innovation and we’re looking forward to sharing our new range of lighting and control systems in the coming months.”
GDS has also strengthened its design, support and sales teams and reconfigured its premises to optimise efficiency. A new website is also set to launch in February.
Cuthbert adds: “GDS is an incredibly exciting place to be right now. There is a real buzz amongst the team and a strong feeling that we are about to take another significant step forward on the GDS journey.”
